    One thought on “Remember to Forget”

    1. Well, just wow. Having been one of the first to have read his first book 'Malice in Blunderland' I was very lucky to have been offered a chance to read Gibbings new book before published. Gibbings had me laugh till I cried, this time Gibbings had me crying my heart out. What a beautiful, emotional and amazingly wonderfully crafted little book it is. The story takes you from the bedside of Richard in a coma, able to hear his family in tatters. Helped by what I think is one of the darkest and best [...]

    2. Short and precise. This book starts with a family broken and shattered, with the reason for that state lying in hospital in a coma. You wince as the mother and daughter are clearly only visiting out of duty, not love. The book unfolds as the hurt wrought by a careless man on his family is revealed and stripped back. Can he be guided by a 'voice' to put right his wrongs?Enter Gabriel into their lives, he helps reveal the wounds in order to heal them, and make this family whole again. Does he succ [...]

    3. From the writer of Malice in Blunderland comes this unexpectedly heart-warming novella about a husband and father winning back the love of his family. It’s very well written, well paced and just like his first novel could easily be turned into a film. However, while Malice in Blunderland would be an edgy satirical flick, Remember to Forget reminds me of one of those afternoon made for TV movies that pulls on the strings of your more sensitive emotions, of love and happiness and what the really [...]

    4. Richard once loved his wife Anna and two little children, Sam and Ella, but as Richard became more successful and made more money, the cycle of making money and wanting more took over his life, abandoning his family. As Richard lies in a coma in an hospital bed, aware of the cruel voices of his wife and daughter, he hears another voice, one he thinks may be his conscience or an 'angel'. This 'angel', Yama, gives Richard a chance to rebuild his family but all doesn't go as Richard expects.Jonny G [...]

    5. For a guy who tends to stay within the realm of dark humor, this was a surprising read from Jonny. It's quick and to the point, making you think of all the things you can let go of to improve your life. The premise of the book I believe is something many people have thought up, but Jonny expands on the idea leaving it stained in your mind.If we could actively pretend to have forgotten the horrors of our lives and those we inflicted on others, who would we be?I suggest this to read as well: thund [...]

    6. Beautifully written with amazing twists through out, it's one of those books that come along every now and then that you feel you don't want to end. Gibbings is definitely one to watch out for in the future.

    7. Gibbings reinvents himself in this quick read. While exploring new grounds, he shows us that life is fragile, love is deep, and stories are told to teach the reader something. It may be titled "Remember to Forget" but this one will stick with you for days. So happy I got to read this!
